Good articles in life hacker

Boring free times can be replaced with good reads in lifehacker and other good sites. The following are the few articles I personally cherished reading.


Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

 Here I’m attaching the Steve’s video which has become inspiration for millions. Though it is all about his success story There are plenty of things we should learn from it, his failures, successes, passion for technology, leadership and humbleness even being one of the pioneers of the world in bringing out technology to the common man. It is a very sad news for the tech world for loosing one of the technologist who has changed the way we are living now..May his soul rest in Peace!

Open-ssh Server installation in ubuntu

If you want to remotely login to any system which is running linux you can do so by using ssh command which is very famous for its security awareness. In ssh all the communication via port 22 is encrypted unlike other communication protocols such as TELNET, ftp, rlogin etc., where all the data and passwords can be hacked.

In all the flavors of linux there is no guarantee that ssh is pre installed. Particularly I’m running ubuntu LT 10.04 in which it is not pre-installed. We have install it manually. Openssh is a free open source version of ssh protocol implementation.

We can install openssh client and server using the below command

# sudo apt-get install openssh-server openssh-client

then we can test it by using

ssh localhost
# ssh user@your-server-ip-address
Ex: #ssh sshVasnath@vasanth

if you want to get the sudo privileges to sshVasanth user running on the machine IP address, you should
use the run the following command in the server( with sudo

# sudo adduser <ACCOUNTNAME> admin

Ex: sudo adduser sshVasanth admin

MultiMedia Systems Project Final Evaluation

Here is the multimedia final project ppt An Efficient Video Similarity Search AlgorithmAn Efficient Video Similarity Search Algorithm. I had already shared the abstract of the project and the actual IEEE Transaction paper I had implemented. The following link contains the link for the final Efficient Video Searching Algorithm REPORT.

The presentation went very well. My instructor, HOD, was very happy with the work I’ve done including  modifications I had done to the paper for improving the time.

The results I got from the video database of a considerable size are:

Video similarity search query video

Connect MS-Access database from MATLAB

Already I’ve shared the way and source code how to connect MySQL data base from MATLAB. In this post I want to share how to connect to MS-Access. I initially thought of using the MySQL as database but due to some issues of reinstalling the OS and being MySQL not getting installed properly, I went for MS-Access. I hope this post will be very helpful to you if you have come here searching for connecting MS-Access from MATLAB.

function db=insertdb(name, imagePath, ICC)
dbpath = 'C:\Users\MyWindows7\Documents\abc.mdb';
conurl = ['jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=' dbpath];
con = database('','','','sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver', conurl)

%insertQuery=['insert into Image values(' name ',' imagePath ',' ICC ');' ]
%e = exec(con,insertQuery);
colnames={'imgName', 'imagePath', 'iCC'};
values={name, imagePath, ICC};
insert(con, 'Image',colnames, values ) %This statement inserts the values which are contained by values %array variables
%e = fetch(e);
%data = e.Data

In the above program % represents comments you can ignore them if you want. I included them to say that there are several other ways to insert a row into the MS-Access database. In the above code  if you specify the path of database(ie.,        .mdb file) then its enough there is no need for you to specify DSN name and other things. similarly you can also work with other SQL statements. I hope this helps. If you have any more queries or clarifications you can feel free to comment here.

Semantic Web 3.0 Professional seminar ppt

Here I want to share Semantic Web Mining PPT that I have prepared for my Professional Seminar. I’ve already shared my abstract and report here. If you have any queries or clarification you can feel free to leave a comment. I hope the ppt would have given some insight into What Semantic Web is?
